Join us at this breakfast event to hear Julie Diamond, Ph.D., the global authority on power and leadership, speak about how Power Intelligence® can help leaders exercise and manage their power consciously and constructively.
Why talk power?
Power is a defining aspect of leadership. Yet, it is hard to get right. How leaders manage the authority of their roles is one of the most critical factors in the success of an organisation. A position of power is tricky because it doesn’t just alter you, it alters the people around you as well. So, leaders find it difficult to understand the impact of power.
What does ineffective use of power look like in organisations?
  • Disempowerment and disengagement
  • Failure to influence without authority 
  • Avoidance of conflict and difficult conversations
  • Emotional distress 
  • Favoritism and preferentialism
  • Indiscretion and unethical leadership behaviours
How can leaders benefit from Power Intelligence®?

Power Intelligence® helps leaders develop the competencies to use power effectively by
  • Targeting behaviours that undermine their authority 
  • Focusing on "power positive behaviors" 
  • Increasing immunity against the corrupting influences of high power positions
